    Hello,

    Windows Svr Std 2008 32Bit/x64 English 1pk DSP OEI DVD 1-4CPU 5 ClT

    i always wonder what does CLT stand for, because there is a big difference in price with 5 and 25 CLT.

    So what does CLT stand for?

    Thanks

    CLT=Client
    Some times you see 5 CLT user CAL which translates to 5 Client User Client Access Licenses.
    I have no idea why they include that, it's a bit redundant.
    5 CAL would be sufficient.
    That determines how many clients can access the Server, 5 or 25, which explains the price difference.

    Kind of like places that offer to sell a NIC Card, which would be a Network Interface Card Card.

    Kind of how MS makes more money than they need. Charge for the Server OS! Charge for the Desktop OS! Then charge for the Desktop(client) to access the server! I have always seen it as double dipping if you ask me!
